Without the right heart note, the essence of love could vanish into thin air.
The McClendon Holiday Series, Book 3
Now that Patrice McClendon is at the helm of her mother's aromatherapy company, she has ideas to propel Good Scents to the next level. Starting with developing a signature scent for Valentine's Day.
She's sure she's found a perfumer with the training and artistry to assure the smell of success will be sweet. There's just one problem. The best in the business is a temperamental perfectionist.
Jacques Germain is intrigued with the opportunity to work with a small-market company like Good Scents, but from his first tumultuous meeting with Patrice, her aggressive business sense overpowers the subtler notes of their underlying attraction.
Worse, once they're in the lab, their chemistry proves volatile. To find the missing ingredient in Patrice's make-it-or-break-it blend—and in their relationship—they'll have to figure out how to work side by side instead of head to head. And trust that their deepest vulnerabilities could be their greatest strength.
Warning: Contains a driven businesswoman so close to success she can smell it, and a high-end "nose" who knows all too well how quickly the sweetest love can turn bitter.
